    DayBreak94's Firewatch (PC)

    Log #3 Firewatch (PC)
    The story in Firewatch is really starting to heat up no pun intended. Up until this point in the game, I have been taking it slow getting lost in the world exploring the environment and enjoying the conversations between Henry and Delilah. However, during this session, the story started to become a little more tense with the creepy notion that someone out in the wilderness has been spying on Henry and Delilah and recording their conversations. This part of the game really made me think about an invasion of privacy and whether or not in the case of this game if it is an acceptable practice. This might be one of the first instances in the game where I have found an ethical dilemma. Granted the notion only of spying on two people in the middle of the wilderness is a little unsettling.

    During today's play session of Firewatch, I went through days 2,3,9,15. At this point in the game, I have to say that this game has me hooked and eager to find out what happens next. The mini-conversations that Henry has with Delilah while he is exploring the wilderness are great to listen to. Something that I didn't really notice with my gameplay in the last session was how much I loved exploring and getting lost in the game's world. What really got to me during this session was the conversation that Henry had with Delilah about his wife and why he took the job. This game does an excellent job of making the player thinking about what they should say to other characters in the game. I have to say that the character interactions in this game are fantastic, I think I'm starting to understand why this game is so special to so many people.

    Day#1 Firewatch (PC)
    For this first OPA, I have chosen to play the game Firewatch. This will be my first time playing the game so I'm excited to see whether or not I will enjoy it or not. Today was my first play session with Firewatch and I have to say that the game is definitely intriguing. I'm going into this playthrough completely blind I have never played this game before but, I have heard good things about the game. One part of the game that surprised me was the beginning of the game and how the story was presented. I really enjoyed the setting for the beginning of Firewatch having the backstory of the main character told through text and gameplay was very interesting. Even though it was just text I had an emotional reaction to the fact that Julia started suffering from dementia and Henry had to move on in his life. The cell shaded art style for this game looks fantastic and the atmosphere in this game is very immersive. For this play session, I tackled the Prologue and Day1 on the job. The map mechanic in this game is so cool because it actually has the player looking at a physical map on the screen and not just so mini map in the menu. One of the aspects of the gameplay that was very immersive was the radio mechanic talking back and forth with your companion in the mountains while performing your missions. I didn't seem to catch many ethical arguments in the game but, I will be looking for more in future play sessions. Overall during this first session I found Firewatch to be very immersive gaming experience.
